With the help of the Yuma Community Food Bank and WACOG, they were able to launch a community out reach program that gives cell phones at no cost.

Safelink is only taking applications by phone. You can call (928) 726- 6200 to check if you qualify. You must have a home mailing address, no P.O. Boxes are accepted. There is a limit of one cell phone per household.
